SAM is very impressive. Tall. Fit. Very fast. Very smart. He’s very handsome and very charming. He certainly lives up to his name, much in the same tradition of that more famous and legendary agent.

having spellbound Elizabeth, he charms Deborah
With seven horses, adding another seemed counter-intuitive. SAM is very much a polished hunter/jumper. He has all those qualities one wants. He had been on the sidelines for 18 months before we acquired him last September. His previous rider/owner, Sarah, has been sidelined herself with a deteriorating, lower back injury. Even with the bad back, she was trail riding with him and her other horses. Sarah decided her prized horse needed to return to competition, she was looking for an owner she could entrust him with. We’re glad to say, we were Sarah’s first and only choice.
Though Deborah and Elizabeth have worked with him the most, he occasionally casts his gaze upon Tara. Catching his gaze, Tara flirts back. The flirting, though, doesn’t last long as the practice workout resumed.
SAM returned to competition earlier this year at the National Western.
Part of his introduction at the NWSS included the classic Johnny Rivers song “Secret Agent Man“.
